Far East Fest celebrated its second annual all-you-can eat Asian food festival on Saturday, February 9 in the parking lot of the nearly one-year-old H Mart (year one was held on the grounds of the Austin-American Statesman). About 2,900 foodies braved frigid temperatures to sample bites from 30-plus local restaurateurs and watch performances from various Asian entertainment groups.
